The Mercer Advantage
For over 50 years there has been tension in the design of mainstream oil/water coalescers. Traditionally, those coalescers that were tightly packed to get the best efficiency numbers fouled very quickly. Conversely, those designed to require less maintenance and cleaning were unable to meet mandatory removal levels. What Mercer International has done is design a solution that combines the highest possible efficiency with the lowest practical maintenance.
At the heart of this solution is Mercer’s Multi-Pack™ removable plate coalescer, a patented system utilizing flat parallel-plate coalescer modules with removable and adjustable plates. The most important evolution in the oil water separation arena came when Mercer created dedicated zero turbulence chambers ("Chimney Zones") for solids removal and oil extraction. The ability to remove solids from the process flow, as well as the other design improvements below, have led to Mercer International's reputation for being the highest performance oil water separator on the market.
